America pronounces judgment on itself - Obama election: 'It's time to double-down and fight harder'
WND ^ | November 06, 2012 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 11/07/2012 2:12:06 PM PST by Perseverando

For many of us, the unthinkable has happened.

America has decisively turned the corner away from the constitutional principles of limited government and self-government with the re-election of Barack Obama.

There may be no way home for us.

For those of us who fundamentally reject Obama’s policies, things are going to get very rough for the next four years. We have allowed our fellow Americans to pronounce judgment on the nation.

That’s what Obama represents to me – God’s judgment on a people who have turned away from Him and His ways and from everything for which our founders sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.

The nation is divided like never before – intentionally so. That has been Obama’s game plan from the beginning – to build a constituency of special-interest groups that truly believe their salvation is found in bigger government, more programs, irresponsible spending and unconstitutional policies.

This election could very well represent the beginning of the end of the American Dream, American exceptionalism, the American way.

But it’s no time to give up – to throw up our hands in disgust and walk away from politics. Neither is it time to surrender to the radical social agenda Obama has championed to win his victory.

It’s time to change tactics.

It’s time to double-down and fight harder.

It’s time to raise our collective voices of outrage.

It’s time to form new alliances.

It’s time to form new communities of people who understand just how much Americans have been disenfranchised from our God-given rights and responsibilities.

But, at the end of the day, people generally get the kind of government they deserve.

When you turn away from the ways of God Almighty, this is what you should expect, if you are a student of the

Hey Joe,

People praying to God for salvation via the hand of a man who spent his life supporting abortion and homosexuality shouldn’t really be stunned speechless when those prayers go unanswered.

Should they? Really?

57 million people in RED.
If they all decided NOT to buy Chrysler..
If they decided to boycott NBC.
If they decided to not pay.
If they decided to stop working and producing for a few days.

Ephesians 6:12:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The battle belongs to the Lord.


What has taken place is a great shaking.

The spirits, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness have been shaken from their hiding places... evil has been exposed.

We don’t have to wait four years. Senate elections in two and we should get on it now. Great candidates who can win these elections. And we need to work with True the Vote and others to get rid of fraud. As is they catch it and stop but how many got through before they stopped?

Yes, double-down but be smart about it.

“For those of us who fundamentally reject Obama’s policies, things are going to get very rough for the next four years. We have allowed our fellow Americans to pronounce judgment on the nation.”

We did not allow them, we fought them with everything we had. We appealed for redress both in the federal courts and in election. All our appeals fell upon deaf ears and they proceed to rob from us our rights & property anyway.

It is time for a revolution plain and simple. The only question is how and when.

Businesses based in our cities that employ the Left deserve to lose our business as consumers and as suppliers. As much as I like Ford vehicles, rest assured that no Detroit manufacturer will ever see me darken their door again. They employ UAW leeches and they keep Detroit on life support. As much as I like TastyKakes, they employ people in Filthydelphia. No more of them for me. We’re cancelling ALL of our movie channels.

An odd thought struck me today. The Nissan Leaf *totally* screws the UAW and all the dependent Detroit-based sub-industries around them. Too bad the battery tech really isn’t there yet and that I have to park in the street.

Time to start thinking out of the box.

All we can do is to go forward one step at a time, living our lives with a quiet dignity, trusting in the Lord, and at all times conducting ourselves with integrity. Then see what happens. If the country continues to go downhill because a majority want socialist programs, then so be it. We will still go about our daily business and try to make the best of it, all the while praying to the Lord for guidance.

You mean not sown, that is precisely what they are yelling about, they own nothing because they don’t want to work to make anything. They want steal what we have created for ourselves.

Hard work & economic freedom in this “federation” is already demonized by this group precisely because others have chosen to engage in it and been stressful.

What we are dealing with is the thieving greed & envy of the idle. The question we now find ourselves asking is: “How does one live in a den of thieves?”

“and fight harder”. Sounds way too much like the donkey’s line from Animal Farm.

My country committed suicide yesterday. I just hope the corpse keeps flopping long enough for me to stay free until I die. My kids have no future and no hope, except that Jesus comes back soon. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.

Unfortunately, until party leadership "gets it" (and they so don't have a clue), we don't have a viable option. First thing this am, I am hearing a disconnect from them that people like Rush are to blame for inciting conflict. Ah, no. People like Rush (namely, a conservative) should be the next candidate.

There needs to be a change in the primary system where there are one, two, or three separate primaries and all candidates are included in them. As it is, by the time Nebraska has a primary, we have no voice in who is selected and are often on our 5th choice as to who we have to support.

We also have to be more aggressive in demanding coverage in the main stream media. Where was Bengazi discussed? Only on Fox, unfortunately. We need PACs or like organizations to produce ads to run during a prime time football game, etc. to get our message out there. We also need to stop allowing ourselves to be painted as extremists when we are actually the rational ones. We need to take back the schools and frame conversations as opposed to letting ourselves be characterized as stupid and backward bumbkins.

And we have got to have our elected officials stand up and represent US and not cave on Day 1 of the Obamaination's 2nd term by "compromising" on taxes. We are getting nothing in any compromise. No more "reaching across the isle," when they never offer to work with us unless it is to RINOs.

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour’d upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

There is a way back to the America we once knew - look at the electoral map by state. There is the northeast corridor to the Great Lakes, and an isolated island in the flowage of the Rio Grande, and the Left Coast, but a large body of contiguous “red” states in the “flyover” country.

The principle of secession is stil valid. Read the words of the Declaration of Independence again, and almost all the provisions still apply today. It could be adopted with a minimum or revisions. The words of “Pursuit of Happiness” would be stricken and “Ownership of Property” substituted. An updated version of the Constitution could also be drawn up, incorporating the Bill of Rights and so much of the additional Amendments that are relevant today, plus some revision of the internal wording that prevents the ownership of property that includes “three-fifths” of a human being.

RE: People have been waiting for two thousand years.

So we’re about 2000 years closer than we were. And for those waiting for Jesus to come back for them for the first 1900 years, apparently they got there first before Jesus came back for them. For those born during the past 100 years the numbers change daily.

“Senate elections in two and we should get on it now.”

That and start looking at presidential candidates for 2016. We need to weed out the RINO duds, form a consensus and get behind a single candidate for the primaries. If we need to hold a pre-primary convention to pick a good candidate, I have no problem with that. This last primary season was a disgusting circular firing squad where a number of good candidates were butchered like hogs right here on FR.

Conservatives are completely outclassed in organizational skills compared to liberals.

A hurricane cut short & disrupted McCain’s Convention. A hurricane cut short & disrupted Mitt’s Convention. A freak hurricane hit the east coast days before the election giving Obama the ultimate photo-op and burying all the negative news that could hurt him.

It sures seems like the invisible hand of Providence was at work here. There is something we are supposed to learn from all of this.

Count me in. If we can get the GOP off their butts and actually change the way we pick our candidate, we might have a fighting chance.

But for 2014, can’t we find good candidates who can win? They’d have to be able to survive the press (one wrong word is headlines in all msm outlets) and connect with the people.

I agree....we need to lstend and learn...and then ACT! Yesterday I thought that a decent man was brought forth at this election to keep the greatest nation in history from certain destruction. Now I know that was wrong. But there is something greater than politics in play here.

I’m still mourning what I see as the loss of the country of my birth. I’ve felt for several years now that I’ve awakened in a strange land that isn’t a very nice place to be.

However, in my lifetime, I have prayed fervently for things I was sure were right to happen and sometimes have been bitterly disappointed. After years have passed I have thanked my Lord that what I prayed for didn’t happen. Our Creator decides what must be and His time isn’t ours. Even though it’s hard to do, I’m trying to remember that now.

It’s coming down to whether we will obey Him in regard to His mandates or bow to the Obamanation and compromise our principles and beliefs. Perhaps that’s what this is all about.
